The SBHS school counseling department is preparing to conduct Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) conferences with all 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students and parents. As required by the Education and Economic Development Act (EEDA), students, in consultation with their parents, guardians, or representatives designated by their parents, must meet with a school counselor to update or create an Individual Graduation Plan and select a major.
These meetings will be held in September (12th graders), October (9th graders), November (11th graders), and January (10th graders). Registration for classes for the upcoming school year (2023-2024) will be completed prior to the IGP meeting. Parents and students will meet with a school counselor to update the IGP, review career assessments, review post-secondary plans, discuss work based learning opportunities and select a high school major. The meeting will be kept to a maximum of 25-30 minutes. If additional time is needed or you have concerns not related to the IGP meeting, you may request an appointment for an individual conference. For in-person meetings, social distancing guidelines limit participation to one adult and one student.
We welcome you to schedule your IGP with your school counselor using the Bookings app. A link is provided for each counselor on this page. Please use the student's name when scheduling your IGP appointment time and date. Students and parents that do not select an appointment date and time with their appropriate counselor will be assigned an appointment time. Students and parents will be able to complete the course request through the Power School parent portal prior to the IGP meeting. We encourage you to discuss career goals and academic progress with your student prior to selecting courses for 2023-2024 and attendance at the IGP conference.
Parents that are unable to attend the IGP conference due to unusual circumstances can complete the IGP Parental Designee Form and have an adult of their choice attend the meeting in their place. The link to this form is at the bottom of the page. Parents also have the option of requesting a virtual meeting.
